Metal Gear Rising is not Solid but still, unmistakably Metal Gear. Despite its lack of seeming significance to the larger scope of the franchise and less complex plot, it does no harm to the setting and features enough action-packed combat that nobody should really give a toss about the story anyway.

Finally, after years of speculation Bungie and Activision have revealed the first bits and pieces of what exactly Destiny (yes, that's the official name) is all about. It's a first-person shooter. It's an open-world sandbox. And it's a persistent world. It's all that and more -- something Bungie is calling a "shared-world shooter." (Hamza Aziz)
In preparation for my upcoming impressions of the new Assassin's Creed III King Washington DLC (800 MSP, $9.99), I booted up my 360 this morning to grab the download. I found that it was readily available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for all to see -- but not for me, a Season Pass holder. (Chris Carter)
The team behind Rayman Legends has put together a video which addresses Wii U players who felt burned after the game was delayed following the announcement that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 ports were in production. "You may have heard an announcement about a demo, but in fact what we're going to do is release the full online challenge mode of the game exclusively to the Wii U fans," explains senior game manager Michael Micholic.

Sony released a teaser video earlier last month, entitled "See the Future," and has been releasing evolutionary videos of its previous consoles since. I don't want to come outright and say this is definitely going to be the company's announcement of the next PlayStation home console, but that seems all too likely. (Jordan Devore)
